I know there are some (not many) bengal breeders that use Iams, but I don't think it's a very good food for bengals. Might be great for other cats, but not bengals.
If you can't feed your bengal a raw diet, then I would recommend a Wysong canned meat diet and some (not a lot, 25% of daily intake) dry food. I have found that Pro Plan and Purina One chicken are fairly decent and will not cause loose stools.
Whatever you ultimately choose to feed, remember to switch over gradually or you could make the situation even worse.
Side note: From my own experience and others will back me up, feeding raw produces consistant solid stools. It's fail safe in that regard.
